Well Its all over! I am sitting in my living room looking at two beautiful hand made guitars that over the past 5 months through my sweat, blood, tears, and hard work, have taken shape from piles of wood and hardware. These are Two of the finest instruments I have ever played and they came to life by my hand. It has been such a rewarding journey, and dream come true for me. I have learned so much and done more than I knew I could this year. Thank you all who have supported me throughout this experience. I cant wait to dive deeper into the world of luthiery next fall in the Guitar Development Program. But until then I'm going to head to the basement and enjoy the fruits of my labor! So without further adue, I introduce to you the finished Aaron Paul Luthiery All Mahogany Simple Man, & Surf Green Mustrat!
